She also was a judge for the 2018 BC Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize

Prior to writing, Nasreen studied computer programming at Algonquin College in Ottawa and worked in the field for over 11 years (Programmer, Application Developer). She then moved to California to work as a Systems Analyst/Project Manager for CNet during the tech boom of the 1990s.

After several years she returned to Canada and BC, where she left the IT field and decided to start a new chapter in her life, studying and working as a counselor and educator, while pursuing a degree in Psychology. This interval of her life involved another 12 years of acquired knowledge, observation, and thereafter implementation.

As of 2014 she has been primarily focused on writing — applying her life learning and experiences to developing her characters in novels, short tales and poems.

Nasreen’s other hobby is the research, design, development and presentation of a variety of workshops on various aspects of our society.
